Fishing report 2/25 - 2/27

2 posts in this topic

We just returned from Red and the fishing was mediocre. Despite Kelly and Jon's best efforts to find us fish there were not many crappies to be found. We caught 3 slabs and 3 16 inchish walleyes on Mon night between 7 and 8:30. We caught two small walleyes Tuesday morning at 7:15. We did not have a single bite on Tuesday between 7:15 AM and 6:30 PM. I have not gone that long without a minnow mortality on Red ever! Tuesday night 6:30 - 9:30 we caught 9 slabs and 1 walleye. Every crappie we caught was absolutely dead stick with a red or plain hook. We caught two more walleyes early on Wednesday morning. The three of us fished most of both nights but we did not have any action between 9:30 PM and 7:15 AM. There were three of us but two of us caught all the fish as one of the guys was fishing with fishing tackle from 2 generations ago. You know the pointed stick, heavy braided line and large round red and white bobber that our grandfathers used. I hope I haven't offended anyone who still uses those tools as their weapons of choice on the ice. We still had a great time and we will be back in March. Thanks Kelly and Jon.

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
